The Massachusetts Council of Churches and its member congregations and denominations believe in One Church. We believe all parts of the body of Christ are necessary. And, at this terrible moment when so many people are suffering because of the COVID19, some parts of the body of Christ are suffering more than others. As members of the one body of Christ, we cannot say to one another, “I have no need of you.”

Through the One Church Fund, the Massachusetts Council of Churches prioritizes the financial, practical, and relational support of immigrant, Black, poor, un-housed, and unaffiliated churches.

Grants may be requested up to $2,000 depending on availability of funds

You will need the following information:

  • Your church’s address, and any website or social media links
  • Information on the racial/ethic makeup of your congregation
  • Average information about how much money your church received in a month both pre- and post-pandemic.
  • A short statement on why you are applying

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The next application window will close on September 9.
